Here's an update from Oakley's foster mom, Nancy:
"Oakley was neutered 3 days ago and is recovering. He is not happy that he has to wear the cone. He doesn't lick at the suture area, but the area that was shaved irritates him to no end. That's where he is licking. He even licks with the cone on top of the area just to give him relief. I am going to put some vaseline on the shaved area and see if it helps.
The vet who checked him over discovered that he has cataracts in both eyes. It is kind of unusual for a pup so young to have cataracts. As far as I could tell, Oakley does not have problem seeing even in dim light. I tested him a couple times while crouching at the corner of a room with the lights turned off. He came straight to me with kisses. So I don't really know what to make out of this.
Other than that, Oakley is doing well. He is very reliable when it comes to toilet training. He is a good boy."

David dropped us a note early this morning (apparently Van Gogh is still on Central time!):
"Van Gogh has been home for twenty minutes, and his tail has not stopped wagging. Everybody is getting along great. I'm technologically challenged, but I'll take some pictures tomorrow of VG with his new friends. Thanks to everybody. I've been in rescue a while, but you are as amazing a group as I've ever come across. --David"

Hanging out in the Prius! His next car ride will be with his forever family!
From the bottom of our hearts, a GReat big Texas thank you to Cil, Karen, Carol, Greg and Carrie, Pam, Linda, Jim and Barb for helping to make this journey possible. And many more thanks to all the critters who hosted the sleep-overs that made Van Gogh feel like he was part of a family every second of every day that he was on his journey. It's such an honor for us to know so many incredible people who believe in going out of their way to help a very deserving Golden have his very own Golden Beginning.
PS: Stay tuned for pictures of Van Gogh with his forever family...

Van Gogh is being fostered by Karen H., the director of the Pasadena, TX animal shelter. She brings Van Gogh to work with her every day where he loves hanging out with the cats in their special room. Van Gogh and Karen go on daily walks and she makes him special food because he needs to gain weight. Many thanks to Karen for all she is doing for Van Gogh. He is blossoming under her loving care.

Kipper didn't want Danny to stop taking his picture, while Monte patiently waited his turn.
Maddie was a natural!
It's hard to say to who is luckier, Monte, Shari, Maddie or Kipper? Some would say that it is a tie!
